Lovely! I like the fact that it's not fully open. That makes it different from all the rest of the photos of this flower I have seen. Cheers.

what a stunning picture. Your national flower is beautiful. Until now, I only knew yellow, white and pink water lilies...

That purple has a neon-light feel to it. Beautiful capture.
